The Power of Video: Show, Don't Tell

Francis Chan could have delivered this information himself, but the power of the video comes through storytelling. Are there ways you could do this at your church?

  • Jason

    Cool Video but was did he have two wine glasses almost empty in front of them? Gees!!!!!!

    • Michael Trofern

      I guess we as Christians also need to educate people that Jesus actually drank real wine, not grape juice. READ the bible people. JESUS drank wine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cool Video but why did they have two almost drank wine glasses on the table?

    • islanderwaab

      I saw that too, and I thought, “I hope an alcoholic doesn’t get confused with this video.” But then again, I thought, “The Bible doesn’t condemn drinking wine, just condemns being drunk.” Good video though:-)

    Yes, the first thing I noticed, too, was the wine. That overshadowed the video somewhat for me personally. We as Christians are called to be set apart and although I am not judging, that is something that could have been omitted. Other than that, the video was powerful, especially considering I just got back from Bali. While it is a beautiful place, it is also very poor, primitive in so many ways, and most of all 90% of its 3.2 million are hindu. They are wonderfully nice people but so very lost. Please pray for them. Kim

    You people with the wine issue are missing the point, it’s all about skipping a meal to feed the hungry. Why don’t you focus on the more important thing and ask yourself whether you’re willing to skip-1 for the hungry? Afterall they don’t have to be Christians to offer up a meal fro the hungry, get that?

    What’s the song in this video called? Does anybody know?

  • RCox

    pcm… yes the point of the video is skipping a meal. Can’t you see how the point would have been much clearer and less confusing if there had been no wine in the first place?
